Inside Crochet Issue 49 McCloud Wrap

Those wonderful guys at Inside Crochet Magazine have come up trumps with the styling for my latest featured design.
Issue 49
Imagine my excitement when the magazine dropped on my doorstep and I was greeted with this lovely image.

McCloud Wrap
I love everything about image above, its just so beautifully taken, with the hint of yellow foliage in the background and what looks like a little green bird box above just so simple yet eye-catching.

About the piece itself, this again inspired by my love of tartan.  It is worked using 2 sets of colour, repeated 3 times to form 2 squares, 1 being worked down the left hand side to form an oblong block, each block is then alternated when being pieced together, another make that can be increased in size if you so wish.  Finished with a surface crochet stitch in a gorgeous rust red and a crab stitch edging. The yarn used is the wonderful Jamieson's of Shetland Spindrift 4ply which has so many colours to choose from and has the added bonus of being very reasonably priced too, definitely a yarn I will be using again.
Do check out the latest issue of Inside Crochet it is a great little magazine with lots of delicious crochet designs and features.

Oh and a Happy New Year to everyone, mine will be a very exciting one as we are planning a move to pastures new!

Until next time.....Nickyxx
